Fairmount Santrol technology now available for use in high salinity water

Fairmount Santrol (NYSE:FMSA) has extended its Propel SSP proppant transport technology, aiming to increase hydraulic fracturing efficiency for plays where operators face high produced water disposal costs and constraints on freshwater availability.

Propel SSP 350 leverages the characteristics of Propel SSP technology into the realm of high salinity water sources. In addition to enabling delivery of any mesh size proppant, regardless of pump rate or proppant concentration, Propel SSP 350 adds flexibility in water sourcing. Propel SSP 350 can use the most operationally convenient water sources, improving proppant transport while removing the need for excess chemicals and water, energized fluids and specialized equipment.

Rated for 350,000 ppm total dissolved solids and 40,000 ppm water hardness, Propel SSP 350 offers an opportunity to reduce water treatment, logistics and disposal costs while potentially eliminating the need for fresh water sources.
